What it means being a Community Councillor and what can be achieved.
Your local community council is committed to dealing with issues that affect you and your community, over the 5 years Drylaw Telford Community Council has attracted approx. £200,000 of investment into the area such as a upgrade to Drylaw Park Play Area, a new path network in Drylaw Field (Wester Drylaw) and a Multi Games Unit within the same area.
We have just secured a £100.000 from the Legacy Fund which will bring us halfway to funding the Skatepark to be installed in Drylaw Park and we are awaiting on hopefully securing a further £50.000 from the Weir Charitable Trust and if all goes well we aim to have the Skatepark fully functional by late summer 2014.Funding has also been secured from the Neighbourhood Environmental
Programme for 2 project's. they are to upgrade the entrance to Drylaw Field by creating a Japanese styled garden and to fence off and landscape an area at the junction Easter Drylaw Ave/Bank.
